First Settlers: Early Native American Tribes of Michigan

by Joseph Oldenburg

When the Europeans came to Michigan in the 1600's they found four main Native American Tribes: Ottawa, Chippewa, Potawatomi, and the Hurons. This is the story of how they came to Michigan; their customs, clothing, shelter, religion, warfare, and present day status.

Joseph Oldenburg is a retired instructor of Michigan History at Oakland Community College, and a librarian at the Burton Historical Collection.
